The amplifier MAY be sensing a DC imbalance and turns off to protect the speakers. This would be an electronic defect..

If you can temporarily disconnect the speakers and see if power will remain on... If it will, take amp in for servicing.

I can't turn my receiver on, only get red hdmi light flashing. Can't reset or anything. Any ideas.

sounds like a pioneer receiver? If so, press and hold the 'advanced surround' button and the power button. This should allow the receiver to turn back on. If it turns back off again after a few seconds, then you most likely have a problem in the amplifier section that will need to be repaired.

Rx-v390 when i trun on power after few second auto shut off.. what could be the problem I changed all Fuse (4A 125V) still have same problem.

The problem is with either the Amplifier or the Speakers.

If you disconnect the Speakers and then turn back on and get the same fault then it is the Amplifier.

If it stays on OK then you need to turn off again and connect one Speaker at a time (turning off again between each one) until you find the fault Speaker.

If it is the Amplifier thats faulty then it could be a simple repair that would involve replacing some Capacitors but you would need a Soldering Iron and the knowledge how to de-solder and re-solder components to a PCB.

If you need any further assistance then just ask.

My yamaha htr 5935 turns off by itself after 3 seconds. I have disconnected all the speakers and it still does it.

I had the XM antenna plug come loose. In the process of trying to re solder it I had to remove the small shield over the plug. With the shield removed the reciever would shut off after 3 seconds. Once I soldered the shield back on it stayed powered up. I hope this helps.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V3800 Rear Left surround click sound

It's possible it is some sort of interference pickup, but another possible I've come across a number of times on Yamahas is poor earth connections via the back panel.

All the circuit boards have earth connections on them and the screws holding them to the back panel form an earth bonding connection. Tighten all the screws on the back to eliminate this possibility. Costs nothing to try and may just solve it.

Stereo Amplifier fades out. My Sansui dolby pro

No that's how to describe a problem, folks - with details. Using internal FM as the source is always the preferred way of troubleshooting system-wide receiver audio problems (no cables or setting in the way).

Does the sound come on immediately with power and then fade or is there a small delay while the electronics stabilize, a click and then sound that fades?

The fizzle probably means something is rapidly overheating or a capacitor is malfunctioning. If both channels do it, I'd suspect a common power supply problem. Can't help much more than that.

Receiver stays on standby mode

Receiver either just stuck or held or having problem in amplifier output area.
Try to unplug it from AC outlet for couple of minutes and replug back in and power up, if works, fine and if does not, take it to local repair shop as it might requires some parts replacement in amplifier out area.

Yamaha DSP-A3090: All video settings trip unit and it turns off

Is the first set "stereo" settings and the 2nd set "surround" settings?
If so that may mean that the surround speakers arent all connected right.
